The Disappearing Man

We love old press photo’s especially when they leave traces of editing. Here’s an image from 24th June 1948 of what appears to be a couple, maybe attending a function? The editor is obviously only interested in the woman (her head and upper torso have been higlighted by simplifying or erasing the surrounding area with paint).

When we come across this image we have no idea of the subjects within it and are fascinated by the surreal qualities and potential story associated with it.
